Thinking ahead, if I ever get a virus infection in Windows that's so
severe that I can't get back into it, I'd like to be able to just boot
into my Linux and scan the Windows drives from it. Are there any
antivirus software that run from within Linux?
I know that I can always just run one of those standalone bootable
antivirus rescue CD's (and they all run in a version of IsoLinux), but
I'd like to keep my options available. I would probably like to continue
to do other work in Linux while the boring scan is going on, and you
can't really do that with the standalone rescue CD's.
